Detailed Description

View of Delisle, Saskatchewan
ca. 1907, by J.H. Clarke

This photograph captures DeIisle, Saskatchewan, when it was only 14 days old. Located on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway about 40 kilometres southwest of Saskatoon, it was one of the many Prairie communities that, in terms of Prairie boosterism, never "made it." A century after this photograph was taken, Delisle still numbered less than 1,000 residents.
